The Isle of Lewis is steeped in history and culture, ranging back thousands of years. Ancient stone circles stand on the same land as modern Stornoway. Gaelic is spoken alongside English, and Eagles live alongside Otters and people. The contrast of the ages and cultures is experienced all over the Isles of Lewis and Harris (both joined) both in the towns and out in the hills and mountains. In the summer months local people can still be seen cutting the peats and in the winter, the distinctive dry smell of the peat fires drifts in the wind.
Portvoller is a small village on the North tip of the eye of the peninsula also known as the point in the North West of the Isle of Lewis. It is approximately 9 miles from the closest town, Stornoway, and can be reached by car 15 minute drive, where connections by air to all mainstream local and national airports are located.
The village name originates from the Old Norse word Voller meaning a hill that slants upwards and this would have been one of the principle landing areas for the Vikings.
Famous for its wildlife and protected lochs the location provides some of the best rock fishing and beach casting Scotland has to offer.
